We visited as a couple on an early Friday night. The setting is nice but as we were one of the first ones eating, it was quite empty and cold. As the restaurant filled up it did become warmer but was a slight distraction initially. We settled for the four course set menu but added on soup and dumplings. The... More

A group of us had a meal here the other night. Quirky location with friendly staff. We had a banquet meal which provided plenty of good quality food for all. A pleasant experience, thanks very much.

We even... More

We visited the Grain Barge last weekend - what a suprise- excellent food - quality & variety was amazing. Staff were very efficient & friendly & made you feel very welcome. Would certainly recommend if you are looking for good authentic Chinese food - you need to book as its so popular. Looking forward to our next visit.

Visited last night to celebrate our son's birthday with friends. Food was plentiful and extremely tasty. Staff were attentive and friendly, not once did we feel rushed. A great place to go for good quality food. Have been here a lot over the years and never been disappointed ... thank you 😃👍🏼

Seventeen of us went to the Grain Barge in Peterborough last night and although the seating was 'snug', we had enough room. The service was spot-on and the food - we opted for the set menu - was delicious. We had a good variety of dishes to try and if we asked for some more, we got it. There was... More

had a lovely meal in December the food was really good and as we chose the set menu we were told exactly what we were having. There was a new dish on the menu and we were asked what we thought of it. We were also asked if we needed a bit of a gap inbetween courses which meant we... More
